We’ve put Pam’s devotion to Dear Abby to the test and given her her very own advice column! That’s right! @TB_PamR now has her very own space to tell RPers and their characters exactly what she thinks…about their behavior, their words and anything else that catches her eye. She might even entertain a few questions, if we are very, very lucky.
NEW!!! Twe-Guide to TBRP: Getting Started with True Blood Role-Play on Twitter by @TB_PamR
Read Pam’s mind:
Twitter role players are the 21st century’s version of the silent film stars beloved a century ago. The difference is we don’t use exaggerated gestures and expressions. Instead we have subtitles from hell in 140 character bursts.
When I am online and tweeting, I am Pam. Period. That’s who I want to be. That’s all I want to be. Most people, even those I think of and who call me friend, will never know me as anyone else. That is the way I want it. Please respect that and keep your personal life just that: personal. I do.
I hate Fridays. Not only is it one of the busiest nights at Fangtasia, but my Twitter stream/timeline is flooded with spam. And to make matters worse, it’s not even good spam!
There are some SLs and activities that should not be interrupted. Sex, for instance. And murder. Torture, too. Interrupting a vampire feeding, a shifter changing form or a witch casting a spell is also bad form. Beyond being rude, these interruptions can be dangerous. Just don’t do it.
So let’s be honest. We treat others the way we want to treat them. We say mean things, sometimes intentionally. We do take things personally. We invest a great deal of ourselves in these characters, whether original or cannon. It hurts when someone doesn’t like them, or they get into fights, or they just get ignored. Pretending we don’t is silly. But, and this is a very big but (pun so intended), what we don’t see can’t hurt us.
